Here are some brief instructions on how to use the forum

Start New Topic

To make a new post just click on the 'Index' link near the top of the page the click into the catagory you want to post in,
for example, Bet Angel for Newbies/Getting Started
https://www.betangel.com/forum/

Then at the top left corner, you will see ' New Topic' just click that and start writing you're new post

Search Existing Topics/Posts

Depending which forum skin you're using to begin the search is slightly different, for the default skin the 'Search' option is located in the top left corner under the 'Quick Links' menu

If you are using one of the other skins then it is located at the top right by clicking the 'Cog' icon

Once you have opened the main search are most options are self-explanatory with tips down the left-hand side,

One tip I would give is if you want to search for a post or thread as long as you remember the name of the 'Author' (Person who started the topic) then you can just enter the 'Authors' name in the 2nd search field then select
Search within 'Topic Titles Only'

That will return all the topics/threads that person has started by date order with the newest first by default

Morning Trader44, the forum contains VAST amounts of info. If you are going to trawl thru' it - a very simple way of keeping track is to use "Bookmarking" . Hit the spanner icon at the bottom next to the reply button, bookmark the item you've just read then when you've long since forgotten if your 49th strategy was B2L, L2B,LTD, LTF(ield,avourite) or, my usual WTF!
You go up to the top right click on your username, then manage bookmarks and hey presto you have your own custom-based index of the topics you've trawled through. Dallas is spot on (as usual) but if you want to search on "username" you'll find Dallas has over 8500 posts! ;)
You'll also find the print view under the spanner icon too and email etc. It's a useful piece of kit. :D
